one hundred cards
express deep caring and love
hearts held in hand
It did not start out as an intentional act. I had stacked up last year's Christmas cards in a basket. When Valentine's Day came I stacked those cards in the basket too. Eventually, come spring I saved my get-well cards and later my husband's get-well cards. When my birthday came around I thought, well, I'll save those also. And so it continued. Yesterday I counted them. Together we had received over 100 cards this year. It gave me so much joy to re-read them again yesterday.
Happiness is to be surrounded by such caring family and friends.
